High-Quality Dentistry In A Comfortable Environment
Visiting the dentist is different when you come to Pure Dental Spa. Our dental office is carefully curated with our patients’ comfort in mind, and we utilize the latest technology and techniques to offer treatment results that stand the test of time. You can learn more about the comforts and instruments that you’ll find in our dental office that help make our dental care so streamlined and uniquely pleasant.
A dental visit can conjure up unpleasant images, and for some people, unpleasant memories. At Pure Dental Spa in West Loop, our mission is to make your experience not only comfortable but actually enjoyable. Our stress-free atmosphere is designed to help you relax, and our highly-trained team will do everything we can to make sure you achieve the results you desire. After all, your smile should last a lifetime and we can help ensure that it does!
Our intraoral camera is a unique, handheld device that we’re able to maneuver around your mouth to gain an up-close and detailed view of hard-to-see nooks and crannies between your teeth and around your gums. The image that it captures is displayed on a large chairside monitor, making it an excellent aid when educating patients about the issues they may face, treatment recommendations that we make, and preventive care suggestions.
In the past, dentists used film x-rays to be able to view the area of your mouth that lies below the gum line and isn’t visible to the naked eye. Not only did this method take longer to develop the photo, but the picture quality also wasn’t the best. Today, we utilize digital x-ray imaging, which allows us to easily and accurately plan treatments and diagnose problems like impacted wisdom teeth, tooth infections, and tumors. It also exposes patients to up to 80% less radiation.
Cone Beam Scanner
Our cone beam CT scanner is a neat device that takes a 3D, panoramic image of your entire facial structure in under 30 seconds. You’ll rest your chin on a stand and the cone beam scanner will circle the front side of your face to create a digital rendering of it. When we view the scan, we’ll be able to see the location of facial nerves and sinuses, dentition, and jawbone. This comes in handy when we’re planning oral surgeries like dental implant placement and other complex treatments, like TMJ therapy.
Have you ever needed to receive a dental crown, sports guard or nightguard, or Invisalign? You’ve likely had a gag-inducing ball of putty placed in your mouth that you had to bite down on, then. At Pure Dental Spa, we use a small device to capture and create a digital blueprint of your mouth or a tooth. It only takes a minute and is much more comfortable than the putty impression alternative. We’ll send it off to our dental laboratory, where they’ll craft a perfectly-fitted restoration, orthodontic appliance, or mouthguard for you.
Soft Tissue Laser Dentistry
Our soft tissue laser is a helpful device that allows us to eliminate the need for scalpels and sutures in certain procedures as well as to more effectively rid your mouth of harmful bacteria build-up. We typically use this instrument on procedures like laser periodontal therapy and frenectomies in West Loop to easily remove infected or overgrown soft tissue with minimal bleeding, recovery time, and discomfort.
Sleep Apnea Therapy
Sleep apnea is an incredibly common sleeping condition that countless adults face. It can impact your health, daily life, and overall comfort by restricting airflow as you sleep, keeping you from reaching the deep, healing state of rest that’s necessary for your body to recover at the end of each day. With sleep apnea therapy, we’ll craft customized orthotic devices that can expand your airway, helping you get the oxygen necessary to keep your brain and body in good health.
